Brown, Thomas Townsend (subject files)

Thomas Townsend Brown (often referred to as T. Townsend Brown, or simply T. T. Brown) attended Doane Academy, a prepatory school in Granville associated with Denison, from September 1921 until he graduated in June 11, 1923. He enrolled in Denison in 1924, but did not complete the semester nor did he return to Denison. Hundreds of requests for information on the "Biefeld-Brown effect" were made to Denison, a supposed joint reserach project on electricity and gravity conducted by Brown and Denison physics professor and astronomer Dr. Paul A Biefeld. However, Dr. Biefeld and Brown never worked together, and no such paper or effect exists. Dr. Paul A Biefeld was by all accounts "a very fine scientist" and was not involved with Brown, who soley claimed to have discovered the "Biefeld-Brown effect"
